Word around town had been that it hit “the bridge,” implying that it was the local Robert Scott bridge. Representatives from Garland Fulcher Seafood told TownDock.net that Sea Miner actually hit the Morehead City Bridge on the Intracoastal Waterway on Thursday.

The boat’s starboard outrigger showed a crack in one of its beams.
